In light of the day’s reading, pause to reflect on the specific areas you long to see made new and how Jesus’s ministry calls us to join in that restoration. Let these shape your prayers today.
Jesus’s resurrection is a model of what God is doing in the rest of creation. Jesus died and on the other side of death was physically transformed. His body and resurrection demonstrate what is true of the rest of new creation: it will be physical and spiritual, restored but familiar, scarred but whole.
After you’ve read, spend some time in prayer about what this kind of restoration of creation means for your life. Comment/share with the community anything that stood out to you or encouraged you from the reading or your time in prayer.
